Scrapbooking addiction…and a giveaway!!!

Wow  a 2nd post for today…guess that’s because it’s too hot to do anything else lol

Well, I haven’t been blogging for very long so you probably have no idea about my addiction. 

I’m addicted to paper

and brads

and buttons

and rub-on’s

and stickers with cute little phrases…

well you get the picture

The military for some reason loves to provide their service members with one or sometimes two HUGE storage closets…Do we really have that much junk?!   Okay maybe…but hey who needs to park in the garage?  I’ll just store stuff in there.

Which frees up my oversized closet for things that are more fun



Like a Scrapbook and Fabric room!  Just so you know…this room is not totally unpacked yet, which is why it’s such a huge mess!

So as I was sorting and organizing , I pulled out a bunch of pages that I had made with my best friend Rie, during all night scrapbooking marathons.  Sadly we are now separated by a few states, with her being in Ohio and me in Washington.  Isn’t it just more fun to craft with someone you love spending time with?! 

I’m now taking volunteers for a crafty buddy! hehe

Anyway, here are a few pages that I have made

I just love scrapbooking…it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!

Okay in honor of my addiction I’m having my first giveaway!!!!



I put together two different sets because I just couldn’t resist!  (addiction, remember?!)  So Heidi Grace is one of my favorites.  Her paper and accessories are simply amazing!

(btw, I LOVE her fabric too!)

Each cardstock paper pack has 24 pieces of double sided cardstock.  I put 4 different accessory packs that coordinate with the cardstock packs.  Even if you aren’t a scrap booker, with a few basic supplies  you can use these to create a whole album or even a bunch of cute cards!

So since I like all things simple…the rules are simple

1 entry for leaving a comment.

Earn another entry if you blog about this giveaway on your blog

And another if you sign up to follow this blog

that’s it simple and easy!  Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.  I’ll choose the top two on Saturday July 11th. When you leave your comment you can tell me which set you prefer…but I can’t guarantee….especially if both winners want the same one lol

I’m still working on my shop hop giveaway…I promise it’s almost done!  I’m hoping to post that giveaway later this week so check back for that!



  1. Hi Rebecca...I am SO behind on my scrap booking! Wish I had about 6 extra hours a day that I could devote soley to scrapping! Nice stuff here...would love to win! I'll stick this on my blog. Hope you had a great 4th! ~~Annie

  2. This is a fantastic giveaway. Believe me I understand the paper and fabric addiction.

    Either set would be wonderful, but the brights would be my first choice.

  3. Very awesome giveaway! Someone will have a lot of fun with it!

  4. Hi Rebecca,
    I just found your blog through your mom. I'm so glad she sent me!! Great give away. I am a wanna be scrap booker. I save everything there is to save with the good intention to scrap book it, but when there's time, sewing always seems to come first. I'm off to do a post on my blog about your give away and I will definitely become a follower. I love the first set of paper, but both are great. I do use scrap book paper for mats in frames, so this will be great.

  5. Just found your blog through a quilter and I wouldn't mind getting some scrap book supplies - Karen

  6. Hello again!
    I love scrapbooking, too. I have a few projects on the go. The only problem is that my room is so small and it has to house my sewing/quilting, my computer and my scrapbooking projects. I can only work on one thing at a time and right now, I'm taking a course so the computer has priority. sigh. Soon, though, I will put everything else away and get out the scrapbooks and photos.

    I love the first set, but they're both really nice. This is so generous of you to have a giveaway. ☺

  7. I forgot to mention... I am a follower of your blog and I am going to do a post on your giveaway. ☺

  8. Good to see you are blogging like your mom!

  9. Such a wonderful giveaway! I love the pink set so much :-) Thanks!

  10. And I just signed up as a follower :-)

  11. Cool! Just saw the link from Rachel's blog and had to come see! Scrapbooking's not something I've particularly gotten into, however, stamps and paper and all those lovely embellishments work wonderfully with my card making! Love the paisley one, but both are great! Completely understand your addiction!

  12. and I've just signed up to be a follower

  13. I can't believe all the names here I recognize. Hi all!!!

    I just finished a 9 day giveaway so I guess I may have a minute or two to put my name in the hat to win something :)

    I have an entire area for scrapbooking. Then I started a business....there sits my scrapbooking. But being addicted to paper....worse than fabric....(please don't tell is bad) what the hoodle...lets add to that stash :)

    I'll do the follower, make a comment on my blog, and leave this you can add my name three times to the good ole hat.
